This is a South American tree closely related to Yopo, or Anadenanthera peregrina, and has similar medicinal properties. Anadenanthera colubrina is known by many names throughout South America. In Peru it is known as Willka (also Wilca, Vilca and Huilca) which in the Quechua languages means "sacred". The species is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Cuba, and Mauritius.

The trunk is very thorny. The leaves are mimosa-like, and they fold up at night. It tends to grow on rocky hillsides in well-drained soil, often in the vicinity of rivers. It grows quickly at 5-6 ft a year in good conditions. The growing areas are often "savannah to dry rainforest." Flowering can begin in as soon as two years after germination. In Chile, A. colubrina produces flowers from September to December and bean pods from September to July.

A sweetened drink is made from the bark. The tree's bark is the most common part used medicinally. Gum from the tree is used medicinally to treat upper respiratory tract infections, as an expectorant and otherwise for cough.

The main active constituent of Vilca is bufotenin. The black beans from the bean pods of these trees are used to make the psychedelic snuff called Vilca (sometimes called cebil).

In Brazil A. colubrina has been given high priority conservation status.

This is a large tree with a horny bark, feathery leaves and pale yellow to white spherical flowers. It is an entheogen used in healing ceremonies and rituals. The beans (sometimes called seeds) and falling leaves are hallucinogenic and are toxic to cattle. This plant is almost identical to that of a related tree, Anadenanthera colubrina, commonly known as Cebíl or Vilca. The beans of A. colubrina have a similar chemical makeup as Anadenanthera peregrina, with their primary constituent being bufotenin.

The tree is also a well known source of dietary calcium.

Angophora costata, Angophora lanceolata , Smooth-barked apple, Rose Gum, Rose Apple, Sydney Red Gum

Click to see full-size image Angophora costata, Angophora lanceolata
Family: Myrtaceae
Smooth-barked apple, Rose Gum, Rose Apple, Sydney Red Gum
Origin: Eastern Australia
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowers

The genus Angophora is very close to Eucalyptus, and can be distinguished easily by its opposite leaves. The old bark is shed in spring in large flakes with the new salmon-pink bark turning to pale grey before the next shedding. The tree has a handsome, rugged ornamental appearance and its young red tips are often used in floral arrangements.
